I like to grow something new every year, along with the tried and tested.  Some are great successes, others dismal failures, but we live and learn.

I have orange, yellow and red tomatoes, and red, white and yellow beetroot.   Nasturtium and calendula flowers in the salad bowl. It makes for a more interesting salad on the table.

There are many people unwilling to experiment.  The purple carrots were a disaster though.
